Dubai visa medical test results in 30 minutes

In just 30 minutes, residence visa applicants can now receive their medical fitness results at a brand-new, cutting-edge facility that opened on Wednesday in Dubai.

The Smart Salem center at the Dubai International Financial Center was formally launched by Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of the United Arab Emirates and Deputy Ruler of Dubai (DIFC).

Customers no longer need to wait in line for the examinations because the facility’s quick medical screening for resident visas is powered by artificial intelligence (AI).

Additionally, it has the region’s first automated blood collecting system.

The one-stop shop has eight smart check-in kiosks, an on-site laboratory, seven private blood collection rooms, three X-ray rooms, an Emirates ID biometrics office, and an Amer support office.

Several robots are also running around: One for hygiene checks, another is a barista, and one for transportation.

The 12,000-square-foot DIFC Smart Salem center serves 800 clients daily and is 100% paperless.

It is the second center of its kind to open in Dubai. The first Smart Salem facility in City Walk was inaugurated in 2020.

“Located in the heart of Dubai, the state-of-the-art facility reflects the emirate’s commitment to provide exceptional, technology-driven services that can enhance people’s happiness,” said Awadh Seghayer Al Ketbi, director-general of the Dubai Health Authority.

Soon, the new facility will have Emirates ID biometrics and other support services for visa applications available on-site.

The Smart Salem locations in City Walk and DIFC are open six days a week, from Sunday to Friday.

Customers can visit the location and receive their digital visa within just 60-90 minutes.

The third Smart Salem center is expected to open in Tecom by the end of this year. BKM/ Expat Media
